Broadway Legacy, 1891-1928:
Robin Hood to New Moon

A Celebration of the American Musical Stage

Celebrate a century of one of America’s greatest contributions to the world of art - the Broadway musical - through word and song with Michael Ballam.

Possessing a PhD in Music History and Literature, Dr. Ballam has performed on the major stages of America and Europe in a vast repertoire that spans every form of the musical stage, from Broadway shows such as “Carousel,” “Oliver,” “West Side Story,” “Man of La Mancha,” “Stop the World,” and “Paint Your Wagon” through operettas including “Merry Widow,” “Mikado,” “Pirates of Penzance,” and “Die Fledermaus,” to grand opera such as “Carmen,” “La Boheme,” “La Traviata,” and “Madame Butterfly.”
